Wattle fencing was first made in England. It used to be woven with willow or hazel branches. However, it can incorporate a variety of twigs, reeds, or branches you find outdoors.

It produces a wonderful organic result and it is definitely an inexpensive option for fencing, garden walls, screens, or even raised bed planters. Here are below one of the best examples.
You’ll also find here a link to learn how to make it step by step (for a duck yard).

Be sure to arrange something with a local “willow/hazel-owner” before the end of february to get your hands on this great material. Demands a little effort and arrangements, but the elasticy of the material in this period, is well worth it ! You can be very creative with the design.

Tip : Drown the branches in a pound, creek,…..(some water ;-) ) to make them more flexibel. Also be sure to check out http://www.thewillowman.com/The_Willowman_project_WM.html the work of LandArtist Will Beckers @

This “How To” does not really tell us how to make the wattle fence, only the materials. Does one line up the sideways rails and work the vertical posts through them? Or does one set up posts then weave the horizontal pieces back and forth around the vertical pieces? This is probably trickier than it looks. Some essential how to recommendations are needed.
